i will give you my opinion, but I don't think you will like it.

In my experience, cheap ballasts and air cooled reflectors are generally shite.

Ive just returned 3 of the omega digital ballasts which arrived, brand new, and worked for less than an hour. utter crap.

Ive never even hears of the ballasts in the advert, and suspect they are cheaply made Chinese garbage.

I replaced them with LUMii digita ones. they are a bit more expensive, but my last ones were still going strong 6 years after I bought them. SO its worth spending a bit more at the start, rather than buy cheap, and have to replace it half way thru a grow, or after 6 months or a year, generally just after the guarantee has expired. 

same with the reflector, I will bet my bottom dollar that it will leak air around the seal.

 

sorry for sounding so negative, and if you are just planning a couple of grows and are on a serious tight budget, they might be ok, but if you are in it for the long term, I wouldn't bother personally.
